COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a filtered American wheat beer, with a touch of natural raspberry flavor and aroma. Before you pass this one over because itís a ďfruitĒ beer, try it on a hot summer afternoon. Our brewers even admit itís their beer of choice during those hot summer beer festivals.

Pours a wierd orangey copper, not as cloudy as the picture would have you believe. Thin white head and some spotty lace. Aroma is light raspberry tarts, doughy, light toasted malts and hints of grass and a bit of dms. Ligth artificial raspberry flavor, fruity all around, light toasted malts, and a bit slick in the end. Meh- not my kind of beer.

ultra light in appearance, great aroma of raspberries very well featured. on the other hand the taste leaves something to be desired, it is on the week side with not much taste to it.

Strong taste of raspberry in this one, not too cloudy compared to most wheat beer which ended up taking away from of that fuller flavor that wheats have compared to light lagers. Enjoyable to drink though.

nothing really "wheaty" about it, this beer smells and tastes like raspberry soda. a pinkish gold color is the only thing that really tells you that it is actually beer and not some malt liquor infused fruit juice.

My Bottom Line:
Syrupy raspberries burst from the well-fed pale maltiness and the judicious leafy hopping takes this Raspberry Wheat to uncommonly appreciable levels for the "style".

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A coat of foam tops the hazy blond.
-I honestly expected a lot less interesting of a beer and was thus pleasantly surprised; so many of these Raspberry Wheat concoctions are mailed in...
-Some wheaty tartness hooked itself onto the raspberry fruitiness.
-The aroma was full of raspberries, but of the sugary kind.
-The slow carbonation helped the palate to analyze the rich maltiness.
-Iím not sure the base beer fits with the raspberries, but thatís just me.

On tap at the Wilmington brewpub.

hazy yellow, wispy white head, sweet malt aroma with a pronounced raspberry tartness, rich sweet honey malt flavor provides a good foundation for a lot of raspberry flavor, tartness from the raspberry balances the honey sweetness, light bitter finish

May 2005 - The waittress how served this to me (sampler size) lied. She said, the raspberry has a stronger smell than it does taste. It didnít. I couldnít taste much else besides the raspberry and my friend with me said it tasted like overflavored cough syrup. I donít really like "flavored" beers, much the same as I donít like flavored coffee. It seems like any company that advertises a flavor in the name of a product feels the need to way overdo that flavor...whether it be beer, coffee, spaghetti sauce, etc. TOO MUCH RASPBERRY.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 On tap at Phoenixville location...cloudy golden in appearance...smells like a raspberry kids cereal and fresh raspberries...a touch of sour intermingled with the grain/cereal flavor...berries are well balanced..a bit of creaminess to the mouth feel and a slight tartness to the finish

Hazy yellow. Aroma of raspberries and raspberry candy. Taste is raspberry candy, wheat and a bit of lemon. Light body. A good Summer cooler.

On tap @ Newark-Cloudy yellow color w/a slight white head. Definite raspberry aroma. Their discription is perfect, tastes like a wheat beer w/a raspberry flavor. Natural flavors which blend well, has some spice to it. Wasnít sure @ this one, but ended up enjoying it. Nice change of pace; I wouldnít drink it all the time.
